generic titles with the actual chart titles, click the title in the chart or click
the name of the title on the Chart Elements drop-down list. (Chart Elements

tab under Chart Tools. Its text box displays the name of the element
currently selected in the chart.) Excel lets you know that a particular chart title
is selected by placing selection handles around its perimeter.
